Cell Phones Spammed With Anti-Obama Text Messages

Anonymous texts sent from unregistered websites Tuesday night blasted cell phone users with messages attacking President Obama. The texts span in topic from Medicare to Libya to Planned Parenthood.

Cellphone users reported receiving unsolicited, mysterious anti-Obama text messages Tuesday night. Many took to Twitter to share screenshots of the anonymous messages, the majority of which were sent around 8:30 p.m. EST. Most of the texts were attributed to unregistered websites — aiccommett.com, informedett.com, and gopmessagers.com. The texts do not appear to be officially affiliated with the Romney campaign or Republican party.
